Taste test on Etsy

Posted: Saturday, January 15th, 2011 @ 10:44 am in Felting, links | No Comments »

Have you seen one of Etsy’s new features yet ? The TASTE TEST is just fantastic. I had lots of fun playing (I recommend not trying to hard to renew until you find something you’d really love, just pick what appeals to you most. Discoveries are even more unexpected and amazing). And, I also found […]

Idle hands

Posted: Sunday, April 18th, 2010 @ 9:50 am in chezPlum Patterns, Family, links, Sewing | No Comments »

All the comments on Ermeline (esp. on Crafster) are motivating me to get started on a larger version for myself now, instead of working on a boy’s version first. (plus laurent doesn’t agree on the shape I had decided for the boy version. This will be a cooperative design :-D) Anywho. Anyone who’s ever come […]

Never say never: I’m sewing !

Posted: Sunday, November 29th, 2009 @ 4:05 pm in links, Sewing | 2 Comments »

I kept saying “Sewing is not for me, I don’t have the patience and can’t get the sewing machine to work right”… However ever since we moved here I felt the urge to get it out again of the cupboard, esp. with a such large table to work on in the living room. And then […]

Thoughts on advertising on Ravelry, Crafster or Etsy…

Posted: Friday, October 16th, 2009 @ 2:35 pm in chezPlum Patterns, links, review | 1 Comment »

So my “featured pattern” thing on Ravelry is now over. I thought it might be a good occasion to share a few thoughts on results I got from advertising spots on different sites such as Ravelry, Etsy or Crafster. We’d all love to advertise for our indie business, but it’s sometimes hard to know what […]

It won’t come as a surprise that I love granny squares. I also love to think about all the possible shapes you can achieve with something as simple as a granny square. I fell in love with this design the minute I saw it. The instructions are very basic but once you know the basics […]

I know I’ve said it often already, but I will say it again: I LOVE Ravelry !! Maybe this feature is not so new, but I just noticed it today: you can now organise your projects in personal tabs. So cool !! Exactly what I needed to get a better look at my projects. Like […]

Buried under boxes..

We’re packing and packing, before the actual move in a couple days.. No pics this time, I just wanted to share this new Flickr group called “Crocheted interiors“: I hope to be able to share a few pics there of our new place :-)

Annie Modessitt is preparing a book called 1000 hats for which she’s collecting pictures of hats. The deadline was July 1st and it was a good motivation to finally take pictures of hats I made ages ago, or just better pics of hats made last winter… Those Disco berets really needed better pics, I think […]

My first knitting charts…

Posted: Wednesday, May 13th, 2009 @ 7:37 pm in Knitting, links | 1 Comment »

I’ve been working on a secret project for several months now, swatching and thinking A LOT about different issues involved with the construction. I’d be turning it around in my head during the night, still not fully satisfied with the way I had planned it. And suddenly I found the solution (ahem, let’s hope it […]
